Belated Happy Father's Day!

What a weekend!  I was hoping to be able to spend some time making cards and working on layouts, but apparently mother nature had something else in mind.  We had really heavy rain and strong winds early Saturday morning - winds strong enough to blow over a very large tree in our backyard.  Might not have been too bad if our house hadn't gotten in the way of the falling tree!  Yes, the tree landed on the roof and part of it even made its way inside the house.  So in the wee early hours of Saturday morning, my sweetie and I were scrambling to try to find bins to catch all of the rain coming in to the house and trying to figure out what we were supposed to do in this situation!  We did sit down about an hour after it happened and say our thanks that we were okay, that our animals were okay and that our house was still standing.  We thought of all the people in Joplin who lost their homes, friends and/or family members to the devastating tornado and reminded ourselves that we were lucky and that it could have been so much worse.

So, needless to say, my weekend plans changed just a bit and crafting and blogging didn't make it too high on the to-do list.  These are the Father's Day cards I made for my dad and for my sweetie's dad.  My dad is a big golfer and was a big part of my coming to love the game as well, so the golf card was of course for him.  My sweetie is taking his dad to a baseball game this week for Father's Day, so we decided to make the card themed toward that.  Thanks for coming by to check them out!
